Where Is The Pain?
There are several possible causes for specific pain you may be experiencing. When there is pain behind your knee cap you may notice that climbing stairs or walking downstairs increases that pain. Similarly, pain deep inside your knee may become worse as you bend into a squatted position or remain seated for prolonged periods. Pain on the sides of your knee is often related to walking on uneven terrain, repetitive twisting movements, or being active for extended periods of time.
What can Chiropractic Do For Knee Pain?
Did you know that chiropractic adjustments can make a positive impact on reducing or eliminating those knee pains you may be suffering from?
Similar to hinges on a door, your knee is classified as a “hinge joint”. Unlike the hip or shoulder joints, which move in multiple planes of motion. Your knee is designed to only move in one plane (flexion and extension). Because of its limited range of motion, your knee is vulnerable when the ankle, leg or hip becomes abnormally rotated or misalignedyour knee is vulnerable
Knees depend upon feet, ankles, leg and hip joints being properly aligned in order to maintain their healthy function. When you lose that healthy alignment, you may begin to experience pain, stiffness or popping.
Do not allow your problem continue without having it checked for misalignments. When joint misalignments are left uncorrected, cartilage (meniscus) inside the joint will begin to erode and wear down. This is known as degenerative joint disease or osteoarthritis.
Maintaining healthy alignment of your feet, legs and hips is one of the most important things you can do to prevent degenerative arthritis in knee joints.
